This barely Used Martin Custom Shop D-28 Custom 1937 Authentic Stage 1 Aging in Natural is back on consignment just a couple of months after being purchased. Its original owner couldn't bound with the neck so we offered to find it another home. This guitar features Stage 1 Aging so the cosmetic wear is intentional. We have not discovered any new wear on this acoustic-electric guitar and it remains in the same condition that it left here aside from having an expertly installed K&K Pickup installed in it. Please don't hesitate to reach out to learn more about this stellar Martin!

The all-new Martin Custom Shop Expert Dealer D-28 1937 Stage 1 Aging in Natural rewards players with the sonic superiority of Martin’s Authentic Series and the everyday practicality of a workhorse guitar. With an adjustable truss rod, this 1937 model leans into modern times for some added functionality. The back and sides are made from Indian Rosewood rather than Madagascar Rosewood which helps keep the costs down, considerably. This guitar is also lightly aged at the factory. The finish has an Aged Natural look to it but it also features light finish wear and some tastefully executed weather checking. 

Regarded as the cornerstone of performance, Martin’s highly prized 1937 models set the benchmark for generations of instruments that followed. This guitar sports time-tested features like Authentic bracing, hide glue and cloth strip construction, and an adjustable truss rod which gives enthusiasts the day-in, day-out reliability of an instrument that travels well AND responds to seasonal adjustments as it matures. With the all-new Custom Shop D-28 1937, the stars have aligned again.

Visually, this Model is available in a natural or vintage Ambertone burst finish AND your preference of our proprietary low-gloss or the new Stage 1 lightly aged finish. This guitar sports the Stage 1 Aged finish, often referred to as a Relic around here, I'd say this is more like a Closet Classic. With the stark blonde edge of the Adirondack Spruce top cut back with some perfectly tinted lacquer, this guitar genuinely looks like it has been played with a loving touch for decades!

An Adirondack Spruce Top was selected for its era-specific authenticity. This ultra-stiff softwood is considered top of the heap when it comes to Spruce-Species due to its extra stiffness, volume, and projection. The braces are also made from Adirondack Spruce, arranged in an X Pattern, and forward shifted. This guitar is exceptionally loud and can easily fill a room.

The neck is made from mahogany and carved into an Authentic 1937 Profile. The Custom Shop 1937 comes with an adjustable truss rod making this guitar far more season and player-friendly. The fingerboard is made from Ebony which features abalone inlays, 1 and 3/4" Nut Width, and 25.4" scale length
